On the ninth day of Christmas,
My grandparents gave to me
Loving lines a-rhyming. . .
A poem written especially for someone is one of the best gifts for giving and getting. If you've had experience writing poetry, you won't need much help. If you're a novice, you can still write special poems for your grandchildren. What's even more fun is to write poems with your grandchildren.
If poetry intimidates you, try this step-by-step approach. If you're a long-distance grandparent, you can mail or email your poem to faraway family members.
